KANSAS CITY, Missouri — The Yankees recalled Bryan Mitchell from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned fellow right-hander Jose Ramirez to the Triple-A club before Saturday night's game against Kansas City.

New York will have to make another roster move before Sunday's series finale to make room for Chris Capuano, who is coming off the disabled list to make the start. Capuano has been rehabbing from a quadriceps injury that he sustained in spring training.

The Yankees needed another starter after putting Chase Whitley on the disabled list Friday with a sprained right elbow. Whitley will see team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad on Monday in New York to determine whether he needs Tommy John surgery.

Ramirez allowed four runs and three hits and two walks in one inning of relief Friday night.
